    The crash happened at 12:13 a.m. on Waianae Valley Road, about 180 feet north of Plantation Road.

A man is dead and two women are injured after a head-on collision early this morning in Waianae, according to the Honolulu Police Department.

Friends and family identified the victim as Harvey Hashimoto Jr.

At 12:13 a.m., a 19-year-old Waianae man was driving southbound on Waianae Valley Road with his two Waianae 18-year-old male passengers when he lost control of the car and collided with a car traveling northbound about 180 feet north of Plantation Road.

The 19-year-old driver’s car kept traveling, severed a power pole, and overturned, police said. The driver was ejected from his car and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the two 18-year-old passengers were not injured.

Both occupants in the northbound car, driven by a 29-year-old Waianae woman and her 23-year-old female passenger, were taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Police believe speed was a factor in the crash, but it’s unknown if alcohol played a role.

This is Oahu’s 48th traffic fatality this year, compared to 52 at the same time last year, according to police.
